What America Drinks

Milk may be nature's wellness drink that has been around for centuries, but the benefits are far from old-fashioned. It turns out that all milk drinkers have a leg up on other folks. For starters, studies suggest that people who regularly drink milk tend to have healthier diets that are richer in nutrients. They’re also more likely to be at a healthy weight. Milk drinkers may also have an edge when it comes to cardiovascular health, including blood pressure. Plus, no other beverage offers the same array of bone-building nutrients, including calcium, vitamin D, protein and phosphorus, and has hundreds of studies supporting its link to strong bones. And there’s also emerging evidence that the nutrients in milk may play a role in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, certain cancers, type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
